Mandate as below, at the petition of Robert Aschebey, subprior, Hamund Terfordi, John Balli, Henry Wermyngton, William Kant or Kaue, John Billingborwe, Richard Napton, William Gryffin, Thomas Lodolowe, Alan Turman, Thomas Chiborai, William Bowton, and John Drawton, monks of the Cluniac priory of St. Andrew, Northampton, which contained that whereas by ancient and immemorial custom twenty days’ notice ought to be given of a visitation, nevertheless John, prior of Bermondessey, in the diocese of Winchester, and Henry, prior of Derby, in the diocese of York, both of the order of St. Benedict, pretending that they were sub-delegates of William, archbishop of Canterbury, deputed by the apostolic see as vicar or visitor general of the Cluniac order in England, suddenly ordered the said subprior and others (as above, but with Thyberay for Chiborai) to admit them to visit the priory. The subprior and monks (here Tyberay) appealed to the apostolic see, but the two priors, although not ignorant of the appeal, at the instance of John, prior of Northampton, fulminated sentence of excommunication against them (here and below, passim, spelling Willingborwe) and put the priory under an interdict. The prior and monks appealed anew to the apostolic see. The three priors, with the help of John Glasyer, layman, of the diocese, and others forcibly (manu armata) entered the priory, removed the subprior from his office, and ordered, and would have (intendebant) compelled, the said monks to consent to certain dilapidations and alienations made by prior John, from which comminations and mandates the said subprior and monks again appealed. And although they intimated the appeal to the three priors, nevertheless the prior of Northampton with a multitude of armed men drove them out, laid violent hands on Henry [Wermyngton], and despoiled them of their food and portions due from the common goods of the priory, certain books and other things, to the value of 1000 florins and more. The subprior and monks, forced to wander about miserably and beg their bread, petition the pope to commit the causes, criminal and civil, which they propose to bring against the said three priors and John Glasyer and their accomplices, to some approved person (probo) in England (in partibus), with power to deprive prior John, if he be found guilty of the said dilapidations, to order aliment for them while the suit is pending, to restore them to the priory, and to absolve them absolutely or provisionally (simpliciter vel ad cautelam) from the excommunication, and to relax the interdict. The pope orders the bishop, if the violent laying on of hands be proved, to publicly declare prior John and his accomplices excommunicate until they make satisfaction and come for absolution to the apostolic see; to summon the three priors, John Glasyer, and others, and absolve the subprior and monks as petitioned above.
